Take a Chance

from by Raggedy Edge

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    The freshman CD of Raggedy Edge, this is the one that is most indicative of their sound as a duo, featuring guitar and mandolin, with a few overdubs, of course, because it is a recording after all. Musical diversity is the name of the game for most Raggedy Edge CDs, and with everything from bluegrass (Bermuda Triangle Breakdown, featuring Pat Carine Sr on banjo) to the jazzy stylings of Facebook Status and Moments in the Morning, this one set the standard for all to follow. Story songs with plenty of upbeat cheer, love songs that shine with hopefulness, fun blues rockers, and a sensitive south of the border salsa to bring it home make sure that you are not mired in a sea of anonymity.

This is the first song we collaborated on, during a retreat to Middle Bass Island in Lake Erie. I sat down with the travel guitar and started noodling with the beginning chords and Lynn took out a page of lyrics she'd started. In an hour, we had 98% of the song finished.

John Huston's piano and keyboard bass add phenomenally to this tune. We look forward to returning to Utah to lay down more tracks.


TAKE A CHANCE Bob Farley & Lynn Perdzock ©6.11

Sun chases moon across the sky
They dance their dance as you and I
Find what we will be
What's right for you and me

Take a chance, give and take
Take a chance, hearts may break
Take a chance, make no mistake
Gotta take a chance for love

Birds turn cartwheels in the sky
A love embrace in flight
Free fall then part
An end and a start

Take a chance...

Flowers wait til night is done
Then seek rays from the sun
Like petals that unfold
Our story will be told

Take a chance...
